Rethinking real estate: is now the time to accelerate transformation?

29th January 2021 | 11:00am - 12:30pm ET
Are companies viewing this as a time to speed up or slow down projects that might help them digitally transform their real estate and facilities management operations?

While the tumultuous year of 2020 may be behind us – we are still dealing with the repercussions of the ongoing pandemic. Many buildings continue to remain empty or under-utilized causing organizations to really rethink their real estate. Several companies are also using this downtime to either speed up or slow down projects that can help them digitally transform their real estate and facilities management operations.

Space management is at the core of your facilities and real estate strategy. Not only does it play a vital role in the ability to return to the workplace, but it also supports occupant well-being, cost savings and long-term operational efficiency and resiliency. While the way we do work has changed, how we manage our spaces is more important than ever.

So, what types of projects, maintenance or technologies are you implementing?  How has your roadmap changed and what technologies are needed to enable your efforts?

Join IBM and a select group of your industry peers to discuss the future of your buildings, how you are keeping employee safety top of mind, and how you can apply data and AI to better manage your spaces, leases, operations and projects to build safe, productive, workplaces now and in the future.

Discussion Topics

Are your buildings empty? How much has utilization/vacancy decreased?
Have you used the downtime within your buildings to accelerate projects, maintenance and/or digital transformation?
What technologies are you implementing to aid in preparing facilities for the return to work or supporting a hybrid workforce?
